Day 25 of Lent 2018

1 Corinthians 11:26

For whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.

Today is Day 25 of the 40 Days of Lent reading plan on www.youversion.com. I pray that you have been keeping up with the reading each day. If not – try to catch up! I appreciate this walk to the cross. It is not hard or long – and will give us a good insight into the walk that Jesus made for us.

On March 29th we will celebrate Holy Communion as we remember the Last Supper that Jesus had with His disciples. It will be a special time before the Lord and we hope that all will attend. Plans are being made to make this a unique service. (By the way – we will also celebrate communion tomorrow – March 11th – since I was out on surgery leave on March 4th.  Today’s passage is about that last supper and reminds us to treat it with respect. For whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.

The entire reading for today is 1 Corinthians 11:23-26 – 23 For I received from the Lord what I also passed on to you: The Lord Jesus, on the night he was betrayed, took bread, 24 and when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, “This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me.”  25 In the same way, after supper he took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me.”  26 For whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.

God bless you as you walk with Jesus to the Cross of Calvary!

Walk with me toward the cross. Deny yourself as I deny myself and let us draw near to Christ.

Just something for us to think about today as we go on our way.
